I wish this BAT forum was busier. It would be nice to have more discussion here. Pete

Amen. I can't figure out why the BAT owners are not hanging out here, unless they think this site is solely a McIntosh fan group, which it surely is not.

Default VK-53 SE preamp

I have the vi-53 SE with the vk_255 SE amp.

I am very happy with this combination but I would like to know if BAT preamp is a good match with other SS amp like D'agostino momentum ?

Thank you for your answers.
